Though I wasn't able to break 11s with the Z's handling suspension, the 119-mph trap speed told me all I needed to know about this crate engine. And with all of the extra torque, it is so easy to drive on the street-helped in part by the smooth and quiet RAM clutch. Though I did have a clutch problem with a compression fitting leaking, the updated versions should remedy that shortcoming, and I have no qualms about recommending this clutch for street guys who are willing to spend a few bucks more for huge power potential and a stock-like pedal feel. Regarding the wiring upgrades, the Z has been flawless and it appears the LPE box is as reliable as it is revolutionary.
With this crate engine install and test, the 1SC-YA project series has drawn to a close. It picked up a full second and 10 mph on the drag strip, cut 25 feet from its 100-0 braking, and improved its road course times by nearly 7 seconds. And best of all: with the stock-type BMR torque arm setup back in for less NVH, a $25 eBay iPod running through the loud Sony system, and a bullet muffler welded in to the catless Hooker exhaust, this is a fun, rattle-free street Camaro that has massive power on demand and is easy and quiet enough to drive every day, which is exactly what I plan on doing. I'll see you on the street.
